ZombieSmith order update

ZombieSmith have posted an update on the status of orders made with them recently. From their website:
Hey all. Response to my yearly January sale has so far exceeded my expectations. Greatly. Thanks. So much so, in fact, that I didn't cast enough beforehand. I based it off last year's results and was woefully incorrect. So, I just want everyone to know that I am working on your order. I am shipping 3-4 a day during the week and quite a few more on the weekends. In two weeks I have gone through more metal than I usually go through in 3 months. I may have to take some vacation time to catch up. I will get to you as fast as I can. When the sale started I promised some new fantasy and sci-fi stuff. I have decided to hold off on releasing those until I can catch up to the avalanche of orders I have now. When I do release them, I will release them for 20% off for a month, even though the current sale will be over, by way of apology. Thanks everyone.

Noble Armada update

The Planet Mongoose blog has a new post with more details of the upcoming release of the Noble Armada space combat game. From their website:
Today, we received a package that contained the latest and freshly painted ships for A Call to Arms: Noble Armada - always an exciting time in the office. Then, we were doubly blessed as the latest casts from the US arrived, ready for their own paint jobs. We are now just a handful of ships away from having the range completed, painted, photographed, and ready to go, so you will be seeing them on our site within a couple of weeks or so. The rulebook itself is ready, as are the new wipeable datacards we have prepared for the game, just waiting to have photos of the new ships dropped into them, and then they will be off to print. We are currently predicting that pre-orders will go out towards the end of February, while most retailers will see this game in the first couple of weeks of April (such are the vagaries of the distribution network). Pretty much on time.
Check out their website for full details.

Starmada: Fleet Ops details posted

Starmada: Fleet Ops coverMJ12 Games have posted some details of their upcoming Starmada: Fleet Ops game. From their website: Those of you on Facebook will by now have noticed the work in progress that is the Starmada: Fleet Ops cover... which brings up the question: "What is Fleet Ops?" This is something that was always planned as part of the Admiralty release, but never got finished. Essentially, it is a faster-playing, larger-scale version of Starmada, with a minimum of record keeping. You can track an entire fleet on a single sheet of paper. Everything from Starmada (well, nearly everything -- still figuring out what to do with dual-mode weapons) is directly portable to SFO, so you can easily convert your favorite ship designs to their fleet-scale counterparts and fight larger battles than ever. (Converting from SFO "up" to Starmada is not as easy, since there are some design decisions to be made, instead of a straight translation.) In case you're wondering, each SFO hex equals two Starmada hexes; each SFO game turn equals 1.5 Starmada turns; and each SFO hull point equals 1.5 Starmada hull points.

Dice Fest Games release Outrider

Dice Fest Games have released a print and play vehicular combat game called Outrider. Outrider From their website:
Outrider is a game of post-apocalyptic vehicular combat that utilizes a unique blend of dice and card mechanics that create a fast-playing, highly detailed and customizable experience. Outrider is a print-and-play game designed to use standard-sized cards and sleeves and ordinary dice or you can take your game into the third-dimension by using the largest range of the most inexpensive miniatures around: 1/64th scale die cast cars. Teachable in ten minutes, the focus of Outirder is to keep things fast and furious. Most games are playable in a hour. Even with six players, the rounds are quick. The movement mechanics are designed to feel more like driving and less like geometry(!) Players select their vehicles from eight templates that represent a wide variety of vehicles from dune buggies and muscle cars all the way to heavy duty trucks and SUVs - each with its own unique characteristics. Players then use dice to further customize (and arm) the vehicles. The dice represent weapons, equipment and even the driver of the vehicle.
